'Fino alla morte, ed oltre' si può dire in questo caso della singolare iniziativa 'TRFC Legacy Project' lanciata dal Tranmere Rovers FC, in collaborazione con il Tranmere Rovers Supporters Trust, che metteranno a disposizione degli abbonati storici del club un servizio legale gratuito di redazione del proprio testamento a fronte di una donazione dalle 60 alle 110 sterline destinate ad un fondo speciale gestito dall'associazione di tifosi.

Partner dell'operazione, che dovrebbe partire il prossimo Novembre, sarà lo studio locale Kirwans che presterà in forma gratuita il servizio legale che consentirà la creazione di uno speciale fondo destinato ad interventi d'emergenza per le finanze della società inglese, il cui uso sarà condizionato al via libera congiunto tra il club ed il board del Tranmere Rovers Supporters Trust(LINK).

Le parole del presidente del club, Mark Palios, e del rappresentate del Tranmere Rovers Supporters Trust, Ben Harrison, da liverpoolecho.co.uk

 “Nicola and I chose to take on the stewardship of Tranmere Rovers to ensure that this club, which has been so important to me, has a sustainable future. This is a club that is at the heart its community, and it is critical that it remains so.

“Our decision was based upon the knowledge that there were no potential owners coming forward with both the finances and the club’s best interests at heart.

“Whilst we hope to be at the club for many years to come, and to leave it in a sound financial position, we’re keen to ensure that the club has a long and prosperous future.

“This is a goal shared by the Tranmere Rovers Supporters Trust, and together we’re focussed on putting in place the foundations that will ensure that the club is both well funded, and kept out of the wrong hands for generations to come.

“It is for this reason that Nicola and I, along with members of the Supporters Trust’s Board, have agreed to include a legacy to the club in our Wills.

“Money raised will be held in trust by the Supporters Trust, kept separate from their members’ monies, and only spent and only spent when jointly approved by both the Trust board and the club board.”

“To provide our supporters with an opportunity to leave a similar legacy, we have agreed a deal with the solicitors Kirwans, who will offer a free ‘simple’ Will to the club’s season ticket holders and shareholders, waiving their usual legal fees. More complex Wills maybe subject to a charge. The offer will run through to mid November.

“To take advantage of this offer, Kirwans and the club ask that you make a suggested donation of £60 for a single Will or £110 for a joint Will to the Supporters Trust and/or leave a legacy within your will, as a small percentage of your total estate.”

Trust chairman Ben Harrison said: “Tranmere Rovers Football Club has a long proud history and as a trust we wish the club to be sustainable and to prosper so future generations can enjoy their football club.

“We hope the fans take up this opportunity to leave a legacy.

“In the first instance this offer is open to season ticket/shareholders in October/November. We will be then looking to broaden this out to all supporters early in 2017.”
